Im sorry but, which adc would preffer zephyr over pd?

Thats right, none. You cant simply give up the crit on the PD for a little CDR/tenacity, this item can work on some bruisers but if it was designed to be one of the pd replacement options then it definitely failed its job.

You can say that Shiv is a choice to replace PD, but it gives overall less stats for the passive proc, which is something that most of carries could care less as they need the most item slot efficiency they can get.


Vayne/kog if they have a high cc team.

I still thing that PD is better than Zephyr on most ADCs just because of the Crit Chance synergy with IE, but Zephyr in a solid 4th or 5th item for Jax and Irelia (since they go Ninja Tabi + Trinity + GA path); it's also quite solid on hateful disgusting feeding critter (aka Teemo) and many other melee/range/non-crit champions that benefit a lot from MS, Tenacity, CDR and AS.
I still agree it's kinda niche, but overall it offers solid stats.

Except it will never do that without crit chance. Somebody math could do the numbers but PD is way better for right click heroes especially the way it scales with IE.



Except the stats on Zephyr aren't good enough to warrant me getting it over mercs. If it gave more AD and CDR less AS then it could be used in conjunction with Zerks to gain the extra AS if you need it or whatever other boots. Like I look at it and think it's a cool item but it's just not got the right stats I need. As it is I'd rather go straight mercs and spend that 3k on something more stable.

In other words, its best on junglers and phys bruisers.

You are thinking a little too powerful there.

Zephyr + Statikk Shiv (price over 5000?)
+20 Attack Damage
+90% Attack Speed
+20% Critical Strike Chance
+16% Movement Speed
+10% Cooldown Reduction
UNIQUE Passive - Tenacity: The duration of stuns, slows, taunts, fears, silences, blinds and immobilizes are reduced by 35%.
UNIQUE Passive: Moving and attacking build Static Charges. At 100 Charges, your next attack expends the Charges to deal 100 magic damage to up to 4 targets. This damage can critically strike.

Not a chance.

AS/AP Kayle loves this item. It's what allows her to not go standard AD carry build, and drop the CDR on her E to nothing.

So, Zephyr+Nashor's+what for the last 10%? I like the start but I think that Black Cleaver would best provide the last 10% although that is hybrid.
